The Door County Land Trust had a year of success and succession in 2016. The organization had a transition from the past executive director Dan Burke to its new executive director Tom Clay in mid-September. Door County Land Trust Board President Jeff Ottum shares the successes of last year.
Ottum says one of the exciting new protective land projects was working with Lawrence University where over 300 acres of land was protected at Bjorklunden near Baileys Harbor. Over 2500 members belong to the Door County Land Trust. For more information on the Door County Land Trust, go to
